“THE LAWYERS WITHIN THESE PAGES HAVE GROWN AND PROTECTED THEIR CLIENTS THROUGH THE HARDEST TIMES.”
Welcome to WIPR Leaders 2021, a directory of some of the world’s most talented IP lawyers. Entry into this year’s edition is a testament to the tenacity of practitioners providing the highest quality services during an extraordinary year.
The COVID-19 pandemic put pressure on our personal and professional lives. Working remotely, as many were forced to, combined both worlds—not always comfortably. This brought with it new challenges for our lawyers. Clients too were facing the same working challenges during this chaotic period, with the added pressure of a global economic shock that is still being felt.
The lawyers within these pages represent those who managed to maintain the quality of their patent, trademark, and copyright advice. They have grown and protected their clients through the hardest times and, in doing so, proved themselves to be more than just reliable counsel. They have also grown their own reputations, the reputations of their firms, and offered high standards to which others in the profession can be held.
Featuring more than 1,000 professionals from 68 countries, WIPR Leaders 2021 offers a list of go-to contacts from Argentina to Vietnam. Dotted throughout the directory are useful country guides, written by senior IP leaders in Taiwan, Sweden and India, among others.
Following a lengthy and detailed research process conducted over several months, WIPR is confident that this is the best place to find your next reliable external counsel, wherever you need to operate.
We hope you find it useful.
